Wrap-Around Roof
Thompson House | West Vancouver, BC, Canada

Located on a steep site in West Vancouver, Thompson House was designed to capture expansive views of the ocean harbour to the front and mountains to the rear. The dynamic interior spaces are held beneath an extensive roof that wraps around to form the closed side façades and controls sightlines for privacy to and from the neighbours.

The roof structure is inclined with a different slope on each of the four exterior elevations, and consequently, varied ceiling heights on the upper floor interior. The two upper floors appear to hover above the garden pool nestled in a planted rock garden. By cladding the lower level in a light shade of grey Swisspearl panels, the sense of floating above the landscape has been emphasised. Large openings to the views are contrasted with the façades facing the neighbouring properties, which are clad in black Swisspearl panels.
